One of the largest health issues Americans face is obesity. Obesity is when excess fat on the body jeopardizes the health of an individual. According to the NIH, approximately eighty million Americans are obese, and an upwards of five million are morbidly obese. Often, diet and exercise can have no effect on a person's weight as genetic factors largely determine your body type. Due to amazing advances in science and medicine, other weight loss techniques have been developed to combat obesity. Bariatric surgery is a general term for weight loss surgery. There are many types of Bariatric surgery; many involve physically shrinking the capacity of a person's stomach. Usually, doctors will only perform Bariatric surgery if a patient is 100 pounds overweight or has a BMI (body mass index) of 40 or greater. The process has some risk factors but is largely successful.
